    2011 - 05.12

    I know I’ve talked about Bob Ross before, but I have to again.  Just ‘cuz. (And because I’m going through the 20 recorded Joy of Painting episodes we’ve got…I hadn’t realized they were in HD.  Whoops.)

    I’m sure there’s already a Bob Ross drinking game, which I’ll search out for after I do my own.  Please add more thoughts in the comments!

    Take a drink every time Bob says:

    “A happy little *noun*.” (favourites are tree, cloud, painting)
    “Give him a friend.” (ie: putting a second tree in there)
    White like “hhooo-ite” (small sips, or you’ll be hammered by the end of the first five minutes)
    “This is your world”, “You’re in control”, “You can do whatever you like”
    “There are no mistakes, only happy accidents.” (My students finish that when I start saying that…hahah)
    “This just lives right over here.”
    “Just make up a little story.”
    “Get a little roll of paint.”
    “It don’t work unless you put in the sound effects.”
    “Do a *noun*ectomy.” when cutting off part of a bit of painting (cabin, tree)
    “Some of my friends.”
    Mentioning Peapod, his baby squirrel.

    Drain your glass at the point where Bob does SOMETHING where you think “Oh man, he’s totally screwed this up…how’s he gonna fix that??”

    I love this guy. Would you believe that he used to be in the army and yelled at people like crazy?
